Below you can read feedback from an ITTT graduate regarding one section of their online TEFL certification course. Each of our online courses is broken down into concise units that focus on specific areas of English language teaching.


In this unit, I watched two different classes - both on the same topic, with the same teacher, and the same students, but the first one was unengaging, boring, intimidating, and overall poorly executed by the teacher. The second, better lesson video engaged the students more, made them feel more comfortable to participate (and therefore learn more and self-motivate more), covered more material, and was more fun.I enjoyed Unit 13, while attempting to learn Chinese just the other day I could hardly move my mouth in the correct way to correctly pronounce the word. I did not realize that out mouth's do not necessarily move in the way that they should when speaking another language. It is necessary to know the parts of the mouth so that you can teach students the way their mouths should be moving to pronounce certain words.
